In some embodiments, the light source 102 is a high intensity light emitting diode (LED). The light source 102 provides a main light source for the portable electric light 100. The light source 102 is configured to emit light generally in the forward direction. In certain embodiments, the light source 102 may be a high-intensity light source that can emit light forward through smoke, fog, or other conditions where visibility is limited. In certain embodiments, the portable lamp 100 is an orthogonal portable lamp (eg, a portable lamp having a light source (102) oriented in an orthogonal direction relative to the portable lamp housing).

  The portable electric light 100 further includes a set of light sources 104. The light source 104 is arranged to emit light downward at a certain angle with respect to the light source 102. That is, the light emitted by the light source 104 is non-parallel (or tilted) to the light emitted by the light source 102. By emitting light downward at an angle, the light source 104 provides the user with a field of view ahead of the user in a limited viewing situation. In certain embodiments, the light source 104 may emit light downward at an angle of 45 °. According to another embodiment, the light source 104 may emit light downward at another angle (eg, 30 °, 60 °, etc.). In some embodiments, the angle of the light source 104 (and / or the direction of the light emitted by the light source 104) may be set when the portable light 100 is assembled. In another embodiment, the angle of light source 104 (and / or the direction of light emitted by light source 104) can be adjusted by the user such that the angle of light source 104 (and / or the direction of light emitted by light source 104) can be adjusted by the user.

Next, instructions are provided to the light sources 102, 104 via components connected to the PCBs 110, 112, for example.

  In some embodiments, the instructions may be based on a user-selected operating mode. The user may select a mode of the portable light 100 regarding the operation of the portable light 100. For example, in the first mode, each of the light source 102 and the light source 104 may illuminate at a first luminance level (for example, output 100%). In the second mode, each of the light source 102 and the light source 104 may illuminate at a second luminance level (for example, output 50%). In the third mode, only the light source 104 illuminates to illuminate only the path (ie, the light source 102 does not illuminate to provide light forward). In the fourth mode, only the light source 102 is illuminated to illuminate only the front (ie, the light source 104 is not illuminated to provide light downward). In the fifth mode, the one or more light sources 102, 104 may be flashlights. The modes described above are merely examples of operating modes, and thus the portable light 100 is not limited to any one of these modes, or a combination thereof. In other non-limiting exemplary modes, the brightness of the light source 102 and the light source 104 is changed, the flashing or blinking pattern of the light source 102 and the light source 104 is changed, and which of the light sources 104 is illuminated ( For example, only two of the three LEDs) may be changed.
